1st attempt at GMAT- 640 [#permalink] New post 16 Oct 2006, 07:12
A little about myself. I am applying to a Masters in Accountancy for the upcoming Spring semester or Fall of '07. I have a good undergrad GPA- 3.62 Major- 3.91 in Finance, and have roughly 1.5 years of work experience. The issue of whether an MBA would be a wiser option has already been discussed and considered. For my career goals however, I need a CPA and Big 4 experience. An MS in Accountancy will require less time to complete and more specialized education towards these intermediary goals.

My preparation for the GMAT was really quite pathetic in retrospect. I studied off an on for roughly 1-2 months, sporadically logging 2-7 hours a week. I focused entirely on GMAT OG, only the quant section, and just ran through problems. Needless to say I think I could do substantially better on the exam. My question is will it hurt me for a career in Accounting? I do plan to go back and obtain an MBA before I open my own business, however as this endeavor is atleast 3-4 years down the road, my GMAT might be expired anyways. I am relatively confident that I can gain admittance to most any of the AACSB accredite Accounting program in the country. Do Accounting firms consider GMAT scores?

Thanks for the input.- Evan

I don't know if accounting firms ask for your GMAT scores, but a 640 isn't such a bad score that it would keep you out of well-respected programs. Have you checked out the sites of the schools you're interested in to see what the stats are for their incoming students? That would give you a feel for where you stand.

You'd be STARTING this January, though? You would have already had to apply, quite a while ago. Deadlines are looming for fall intake.

I was flipping through a business week (at least I think it was BW) issue today a Barnes and Noble that showed all the stats on biz schools among others, and the top 10 programs GMAT were in the 700 range. But the rest ranged in the mid 600's. These are averages, yes, but also should tell you that your score is fine. Plus, many of the programs had admitt rates in the 30-50% range.
